Leicester vs Chelsea Preview & Prediction

Match preview 

Graham Potter leads his Chelsea team to the King Power Stadium on Saturday to take on a Leicester City team that is lacking confidence after just recording the biggest victory of his Chelsea tenure thus far.

In the Champions League round of 16, the guests defeated Borussia Dortmund 2-1 overall midweek, while Brendan Rodgers’ team lost to Southampton 1-0 the previous time out.

Few would criticise Leicester for losing to Arsenal and Manchester United, but losing to Blackburn Rovers in the FA Cup and then missing numerous opportunities against Southampton is worrisome. The Foxes now risk becoming the first Premier League team in history to go three games without having a shot on goal.

In addition, Rodgers, 50, faces the possibility of adding another loss to his season’s total of 15, which he may do this weekend against Leicester, who come into the game without a goal in four of their previous six Premier League home games.

The safety of Graham Potter’s future as a manager in the Premier League has also been a heated subject, but the Englishman has undoubtedly won over some of the Blues’ angry supporters by orchestrating a richly deserving victory over Borussia Dortmund in the Champions League.

Potter may now be starting to justify the board’s decision to retain him on after last week’s top-flight victory against Leeds United, but Wesley Fofana’s game-winning header against the Whites did little to improve Chelsea’s position in the Premier League standings at number ten.

Going for glory in the Champions League is undoubtedly the Blues’ best route back into continental competition next year, and their away fortunes still make for totally terrible reading. The Blues have an 11-point deficit to close with fourth-placed Tottenham Hotspur, who have played one more game.

Leicester vs Chelsea prediction

Chelsea’s defensive discipline has undoubtedly improved since switching to a back three; their steadfast rearguard should easily hold out a careless and probable Barnes-less Leicester. Hence we go with the following pickings in this fixture:
